The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced Tuesday that safety Bradley McDougald has signed his restricted free agent tender and long snapper Andrew DePaola has signed his exclusive rights contract.
McDougald, 6-foot-1, 209-pounds, finished third in total tackles, according to the team’s final stat sheet. He started 15 games in 2015 and appeared in all 16, and his two interceptions tied him with linebacker Kwon Alexander and strong safety Chris Conte for second-most on the team behind linebacker LaVonte David’s three.
In three seasons with the Bucs after being acquired off waivers in 2013 from the Kansas City Chiefs, McDougald’s started 20 of the 34 games he’s played in and accumulated 133 tackles, 11 passes defensed and three interceptions.
As it currently stands, McDougald is one of six safeties on the Bucs’ active roster. Joining him are Conte, Gerod Holliman, Kimario McFadden, Keith Tandy and Major Wright.
DePaola (6-2, 230) has spent the last two seasons with Tampa Bay (2014-15), playing in all 32 contests, registering eight special teams tackles.
Glad to have signed McDougald. When healthy he is better than Tandy and Wright. Still don’t get it why we signed DiPaola again. Maybe part of our field goal kicking was his blocking?
